U.S. Film Premiere and Discussion: "The Right to Memory"
“The Right to Memory” documents Arseny Roginsky's reflections on himself and his country. Roginsky was one of Russia's most distinguished public intellectuals and was an historian, a former political prisoner, and a co-founder of Memorial, which this fall celebrates 30 years since its founding.
